Merrick Buys McLaughlin Water Engineers
Merrick & Co. has bought McLaughlin Water Engineers, the company reported Tuesday. Aurora-based Merrick has 14 offices and works in the energy, national security, life sciences and sustainable infrastructure sectors. It specializes in architecture, design-build, surveying and geospatial work. It was 500 employees. McLaughlin, of Denver and Aspen, has worked on water systems, wastewater, water resources, drainage and flood control, utility economics and whitewater design in the Rocky Mountain region since 1966. McLaughlin has 23 employees, all of whom will retain their jobs.
“Our two firms, and many of our principals, have worked together over the years on significant water projects,” Ralph W. Christie Jr., chairman and CEO of Merrick, said in a news release.
McLaughlin will keep its Denver and Aspen locations.
The purchase price wasn’t revealed.
Merrick announced in March that it plans to move its corporate headquarters to Greenwood Village after nearly 40 years in Aurora.
The company has leased 103,000 square feet of office space at Greenwood Corporate Plaza Building, 5970 Greenwood Plaza Blvd., near Interstate 25 and Orchard Road.
